HOW GIRLS CAN HELP BUILD THE EMPIRE

Yesterday I heard about this 18-year old girl who’s training to become a captain on the Thames. Someday she wants to be the captain of an ocean liner. How cool is that! It made me think of this book called HOW GIRLS CAN HELP BUILD THE EMPIRE. It’s from 1912 and asks questions like, “Perhaps you don’t see how a mere girl can be of use to the Great British Empire?” Great question, right? But we can all rest assured because, “Girls can even be brave enough to shoot tigers, if they can keep cool.”  ; )

#BOATLIFE

Så var det tid til å flytte huset vårt igjen. Fra Øst- til Vest-London. Det tar noen timer og jeg er rimelig stiv og støl i dag, men sånn er det å være continuous cruisere. Noen nordmenn går på ski i påsken; vi flytter båt i London. Det er ikke så verst det heller. Today’s outfit: Ugg’s, Ray-ban’s and boilersuit ; – )

Then it was time to move our house again. From East – to West-London. It takes a day and  I’m pretty beaten, but that’s life as continuous cruisers. Some Norwegians go skiing in Easter; we’re moving our boat in London. That’s not too bad either. Today’s outfit: Ugg’s, Ray-ban’s and boiler suit ; – )

THAT WHITE SHIRT

Mamma er helt rå til å finne ting på salg og fant denne til meg da vi var på Gran Canaria. Noe av det beste jeg vet er hvite skjorter, for man kan liksom ikke gå galt i det. Denne kostet altså 7€ i Zara og jeg elsker de små detaljene, puffermene og broderiene, som gir den et ekstra feminint preg.

Mum is nothing but awesome when it comes to spotting things on sale and found this for me when we were on Gran Canaria. I have a thing for white shirts because you’re always dressed for the occasion. This cost 7€ at Zara and I love the little details, the puff sleeves, the embroidery, that gives it a feminine touch.

HEART OF GOLD

Da jeg kom hjem og skulle lage en kopp kaffe ble jeg ganske overrasket, for der, i skapet, hadde kjæresten plassert disse fine, nye gullkoppene. “He knows me well,” tenkte jeg, for det bor helt klart en prinsesse i meg som elsker pompøse gullspeil, statuer og barokke møbler. Det er i hvert fall ingen tvil om at kaffen smaker av gull nå ; )

When I came home and started to make a cup of coffee, I was very surprised, for there, in the cupboard, my boyfriend had placed these beautiful, new, gold cups. “He knows me well,” I thought, because there lives a princess in me that loves pompous gold mirrors, statues and antiques, and there is certainly no doubt that the coffee tastes of gold now ; )
